‘BEYOND THE RAINBOW’ (A “FUTURE WORK” by craig lock)

Beyond the Rainbow (a future "work" by craig lock

imagine peace

Only when peace lives within us, will it live outside us

“Either we stayed as we were, trapped inside our fortress of paranoia, deformed by fear and greed, or we opened the door to Africa and set forth into the unknown.”
-Rian Malan (in his brilliant book ‘My Traitor’s Heart’ – page 413)

“From the depth of the valleys, in the deserts of despair, there is hope… as there is the unquenchable oasis of the human spirit… always.”

They formed the basis for a book on SA, “the Beloved Country” that I never completed (  I think, as I tend to lose track of all my books), as I got “side-tracked” on many other projects.
